Work continues on the long-sought renovation of the JP Branch of the Boston Public Library.

Neighbors met with the city on Thursday to hear about the progress and discuss the hassles attendant to a big project being undertaken near the center of the neighborhood. We stopped by on Friday for a few photos of the construction. The Friends of the Library are also documenting the project. Its Facebook page is a good place to start to connect with the group.

If the project is finished on schedule, the new-look library would reopen in spring 2017.
